So here it is one day late but just as good (I hope) as if I’d posted it in a timely fashion.
Here are the dead simple rules:
Leave a comment between now and next Friday (12/9/2007) and you’ll be entered in the contest.
See? Simple. No tricky trivia questions or guessing how many projects I have going or how much yarn I have stashed down in the Basement of Wool ™ (like I want that kind of information out there published on the blog for Mr. CPA to see!).
Also? You do not need to be a resident of the US or Canada to win, I am willing to ship internationally should the winner be located somewhere outside the US or Canada.
Two lucky winners will each get to choose one of the following prizes:
Prize #1 - Yarn
Yarn: Fleece Artist Merino 2/6
Colorway: “Sea Storm”
Amount: 250 gm/8.8 oz - appx. 755m/820 yards
The colors are a bit more vibrant in person.
This is a large skein of yarn!
(Prize listing is from top to bottom in the next photo)
Prize #2 – More Yarn
Yarn: Lisa Souza Sock! Merino
Amount: 4 ounces/560 yards
Prize #3 – and Again with the Yarn (handspun this time)
Yarn: Handspun Blue Faced Leicester
Colorway: your guess is as good as mine
Handspun by me from Winderwood Farms fiber
Prize #4 – Spinning Fiber
Fiber: Dicentra Designs 50% Merino/ 30% Silk/ 20% Angora top
What’s that? You don’t knit, crochet or spin? Well then, maybe this next prize might meet with your approval:
Jam, not just for bread any more! Good on plain yoghurt, ice cream or straight from a spoon
(or so I've been told...)
Jam! One 8 ounce jar of delicious homemade-by-me jam.
The winner may choose their favorite from the following:
- Marionberry, or
- Peach Marmalade
There’s only one of each prize so the first winner chosen will have their pick of all 5. The second winner chosen will choose from the remaining 4 prizes. Unless both of the winners want jam, in which case they may each have the jam of their choice.
Winners will be assigned a random number which will be selected from a suitably opaque container by a completely disinterested third party (i.e., the oldest man-child – trust me, he couldn’t care less which one of you wins).
All drawings will take place under the stern auditing eye of Mr. CPA (technically speaking he’s Mr. CPA, CIA thank you very much), who is a real stickler for proper procedures, internal controls and ethical practices*.
*Really. A lot. Don’t even try to burn him a copy of that CD of yours that he likes. He wouldn’t dream of listening to music he didn’t pay for.
